EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman "does an outstanding job" in managing the salary cap. Tom Gamble is a "heck of a football guy. " You don't need to read between the lines to know how Chip Kelly views the Eagles' top two personnel executives. Roseman has spent the last decade - five years as general manager - working to establish his credentials as a "football guy" after not coming up the scouting ranks in the traditional manner and transitioning over from the business side of operations. And Kelly effectively put him back in that box when he was asked Monday about his involvement in player contracts.

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

For a top-of-market $6 million, the Eagles signed backup quarterback Chase Daniel to finish, at most, one game this season. The Eagles would prefer if Daniel never played a game. It would imply that starter Sam Bradford was healthy for all 16 games. Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson would gladly throw away $6 million of insurance - Daniel is promised $12 million over the next two years - for that kind of guarantee. But the Eagles are far from assured a full season from Bradford let alone a herculean feat that will compensate for the team's deficiencies and keep them competitive throughout.

A FOOTBALL TEAM is not a democracy, so the folks in the seats might not have a say. Still, by the end of Carson Wentz's Eagles debut on Thursday night, you had the sense that it was going to be awfully hard to get anybody in this town excited about a team quarterbacked by anybody else. Maybe that doesn't matter to the guy who actually makes those decisions. But coaches are made out of the same stuff as the rest of us, and you have to wonder how long Doug Pederson is going to be able to ignore the part of his mind that is joining in the chorus.

Jordan Hicks has lined up at middle linebacker this summer with Mychal Kendricks on one side and Nigel Bradham on the other, and there is little question or variation about the starting trio in the Eagles' base defense. The depth at the position has been an issue since the spring, without legitimate competition for the starters and a lack of experience throughout much of the depth chart behind them. That could change if the Eagles add veteran free-agent linebacker Stephen Tulloch.

ISAAC SEUMALO'S head was already spinning, before Eagles pass-rushers left the rest of him flapping in the South Philly breeze. Seumalo is the third-round rookie guard from Oregon State who missed most of the team's spring work because his school was on the quarter system. Despite the fact that almost nobody preparing for the NFL draft goes to school in the spring, the league caters to NCAA pretense by not allowing any senior whose class hasn't graduated to go to OTAs. The Eagles set up Skype sessions with offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, but nothing beats working on the field with other players, witnessing how the stuff on the video screens actually looks and feels when you're doing it. It was obvious from the day Seumalo reported for training camp that he was way behind.

By the time Doug Pederson finally had enough of the first day of contact at training camp, a nearly three-hour session in which pads cracked sharply through the swampy air, even the hundreds of selected season-ticket holders and invited guests had drifted from the sideline to the comfort of their air-conditioned cars. It was a very long set of drills on Saturday. Not all involved hitting, but enough so that the players knew a little more about each other when it was over, and they also knew more about the head coach.

For students of recent Eagles history, the 2014 NFL scouting combine should stand as the first and best indication of the depth of a conflict that came to define the franchise. Chip Kelly vs. Howie Roseman was a battle born of the pair's personalities, backgrounds and opinions about football, and the quarterback position was grounds for one of their fiercest disagreements. Nick Foles had just unfurled a stunning season in Kelly's first year as head coach, throwing 27 touchdown passes and two interceptions, leading the NFL in quarterback rating, yards per attempt, and touchdown percentage.

It isn't very often that a 33-year-old running back receives a contract extension, let alone one during the first week of training camp. But that's just what the Eagles did on Friday when they added another year onto the remaining year of Darren Sproles' deal. The Eagles have been generous to their elder players this offseason. They gave 31-year-old tight end Brent Celek a two-year extension in January, and they retained 34-year-old tackle Jason Peters even though his salary and last season's regression suggested they might do otherwise.

Part of the beauty in taking charge of a professional sports franchise is that while the winning clock is certainly ticking, it really isn't that loud for a while. Howie Roseman, who is back in control of the Eagles, never really went away, but his power did while Chip Kelly tried his luck at team building. That means Roseman gets a full reset on his clock now, with lots of time to get things right. Roseman is taking full advantage of that luxury this offseason. He has committed $280 million in future contract guarantees, some of which had to be done sooner rather than later, but some of which didn't.

Fletcher Cox received a message this week from a teacher in his hometown of Yazoo City, Miss. The teacher assigned her students to write what they wanted to be when they were older. Six wrote "Fletcher Cox. " "You get a lot of kids back home that's like that, and it's a lot of kids that look up to me," Cox said. "I look at it as this is where I came from. And I try to put it through so many young kids' heads that you can make it out of Yazoo City. I tell them if you have the 'want to.' You have to have a plan.

From the moment he joined the Eagles as a front-office intern in 2000, fresh from Fordham Law School, Howie Roseman spent his formative years as an NFL executive helping his mentor usher in a revolution and bearing witness to the bitter fallout. As the Eagles' president then, and with Roseman working alongside him, Joe Banner pioneered the two-pronged strategy that became a staple of business in a salary-cap world. The Eagles would sign players whom they perceived to be part of their long-term future to cost-effective contracts, and they would be willing to say goodbye - maybe a little too soon - to some of their most popular, respected, and expensive veterans.
